T Jack being "better than I thought" means he is the starter for all 16 games and the team ends up 8-8.

The Jackson situation reminds me of Delmon Young prior to this year almost everyone wants him gone despite the raw talent being there.
Jackson has all the raw talent to be a very good quarterback he's missing something big confidence instead he was always playing "afraid" to make a mistake. Maybe Jackson won't ever get it, no one knows at this point, but being around Favre last year helped out Jackson a lot. Being around him again this season will help him out a lot more.
Quarterbacks take a long time to develop and the West Coast offense is hard to learn as well.

If for some reason Favre didn't come back, Jackson will lead the team to at least 10 wins.

No matter if Favre comes back or not, the biggest concern of mine is the run blocking.

No that's the T-Jack of old. The T-Jack of new is 9-7.

The difference between them was that Young had a very good year prior to his trade to the Twins...T-Jack almost got Childress run out of town.

Then Young was below average the next two years with before he finally taking more pitches this year and he's gained the confidence no matter what happens he'll be out there every day which wasn't the case the past two years.

Jackson on the other hand had to "accept" the play that was called and not make a mistake that's not how to develop any player it makes them play afraid/scared/"deer" in the highlights look. When he does get a chance to be the starting QB again tell him it's you're job no matter what, open up the entire offense and most importantly no conservative crap.

Ah yes the great Frerotte he was fading badly prior to his injury in that season, if he didn't get the injury the Vikings miss the playoffs in 08'.

That was Jackson's one good game where he was supposed to finally be the QB of the future...and then the playoffs happened.

If he was worthless he wouldn't be on the roster. He's not as bad as some people think and he still has a lot of room to improve.

It wasn't just one good game, he was good that entire month before he sucked in the playoffs to the Eagles defense.

The Eagles did the same thing the previous week to Romo and then the following week to Manning. It's not like Jackson was the only QB to suck against the Eagles defense. The Vikings team on offense has came a long way development wise from that point, Rice finally stayed healthy for a entire season, the addition of Harvin, Shiacone's continued improvement. No longer having "bobby wade" as the #2 wide out or troy williamson dropping passes.

Where is "up here"? If you mean here in the twin cities, yes - KARE-11 is carrying it.

No doubt! Did you see the way Rosenfels, Mills, and Payne carved up that Rams secondary who'll all be out of football in a month? The funny part is, Viking fans will actually now believe Rosenfels has some shred of talent...

He does!
Did you not see the Texans V. Colts game a couple years ago? It takes talent to single-handedly lose a game with only minutes to spare.

He wouldn't be on a football team if he didn't have talent.

Rosenfels was asked to do too much for a struggling Texans team.

He's fighting for a roster spot on a team with Tarvaris Jackson and Joe Webb...

I actually was pretty impressed by the scrubs on defense. The offense though...yeah...good thing we didn't have the starters out there.

Webb was fun to watch. Hilarious though, it looks exactly as if you took a wide receiver and put him at quarterback.

That's because Childress doesn't want to say he's wrong about Jackson. Jackson has now been in this league for 5 years. His development got off track but he's shown very little as a starter.

As well, I would say they are all fighting with Favre.

The funny thing is, as bad as Jackson has been as a starter; Sage has been worse. If that's actually possible. Not too mention he was beat out (legitimately) last season by Jackson and already this year given Sage's awful camp.
